Congratulations to Lisa Housel, recipient of the 2020 ECS Energy Technology Division Graduate Student Award sponsored by BioLogic. The award recognizes and rewards promising young engineers and scientists in fields pertaining to this ECS Energy Technology Division and encourages them to initiate or continue careers in this field.
Lisa M. Housel is a fifth-year PhD candidate in Chemistry at Stony Brook University, U.S., under the mentorship of Drs. Esther S. Takeuchi, Kenneth J. Takeuchi, and Amy C. Marschilok. Housel received her BS in Chemistry and Economics at Muhlenberg College, U.S. Her graduate research aims to understand the impact of charge transport properties on the structural change and electrochemistry of different battery materials. Specifically, synchrotron-based operando methods enabled Housel to probe structural and chemical changes of battery materials during electrochemical reduction and oxidation. Housel’s graduate work resulted in over 20 publications including multiple publications in the Journal of The Electrochemical Society. (more…)
